Drop Spinning Yarn with a Wrist Distaff - Timelapse Video

In this timelapse video, I'm working with superwash wool, a top-whorl drop spindle (The Babe) and a handmade felted wrist distaff. A distaff is designed to help keep fiber clean and neat while spinning, and keeps it from catching in the yarn as it is being spun. It also helps limit fiber shedding onto clothing and furniture, and minimizes collection of particles, pet hair, or random fuzz into the fiber.
